2019 Tournament PreviewCincinnati is in the NCAA Tournament for the ninth consecutive season. Despite high seeds some of those years, only twice has it reached the second weekend, which hasn't happened since 2012. The 2019 squad isn't quite as talented as some of those in years past, but the Bearcats still bring a distinct brand of tough-nosed defense. KenPom ranks them 28th in the nation in defensive efficiency, though they have shown cracks. Opponents shoot 35.6 percent from 3-point range against Cincinnati this year, which ranks 240th nationally. That could be an issue, as the Bearcats lack the offensive firepower to match high-scoring teams, ranking 258th nationally in effective field goal percentage. Junior All-American candidate Jarron Cumberland (18.4 ppg, 4.4 rpg, 3.7 apg, 1.2 spg) is the only major threat from outside, shooting 40.0 percent from 3-point range, and 6-5 guard Keith Williams (10.2) is the only other player in double figures.
